Install Fixed ClockworkMod Recovery On Samsung Droid Charge [How To]


While ClockworkMod recovery has made it to the Samsung Droid Charge quite a while back, seems like it has quite a few issues to begin with. However, lucky for us, XDA-Developers forum member imnuts has managed to release what seems to be a completely fixed version of the ClockworkMod recovery for the Droid Charge. He has been on this for some time now, and the end result is a fully functional ClockworkMod recovery which is rid of all the issues that were inherited in the original ClockworkMod recovery for the Droid Charge. This recovery is not only meant for those who have been managing their time with the broken recovery, but for those who have not installed the recovery at all for now. In case you don’t have ClockworkMod recovery installed on your Droid Charge because you never bothered to out of the idea that you don’t need it, think again. You should see our guide on what is ClockworkMod recovery for Android and how to use it.

The recovery is meant to be flashed via ODIN and to clear any confusion, you do not need to have any version of ClockworkMod recovery installed beforehand in order to flash this one. This recovery is not a mod, but a modified, in fact, fixed version of the ClockworkMod recovery. The recovery now has the most crucial feature fully functioning, that is the Backup and Restore function. The fix_permissions script has also been fixed and is using the latest CWM source.

Button Mapping:

  • Vol Up / Home – Go up.
  • Vol Down / Menu – Go Down.
  • Back – Go Back.
  • Power / Search – Select Item.
